2 2 Agenda  Key K-12 Issues including NCLB  Accountability and Assessment Solutions  Microsoft Class Server Benefits Benefits History History Solutions Solutions Case Studies Case Studies  Partnership Opportunities

3 3 Key Issues In K-12 Education Today… “With data in many different systems how do we know if our reports are accurate?” “How can we streamline our process for demonstrating accountability as required by NCLB?” “How can we substantiate the effectiveness of teaching methods with data-driven analyses?” “Funds are limited, where can we get the biggest return on investment? “We know which kids are behind, but how do we improve their achievement?”

4 4 Where Are K-12 Districts Today? Adapted From: Maslow, A. (1943). A theory of human motivation. Psychological Review, 50, Deliver Individual Resources for Improved Results Advanced Needs  Digital Content and Best Practices  Individualized Lesson Plans based on Assessments and Standards  Drive Continuous Improvement Needs for Tomorrow Address NCLB Reporting Requirements Basic Needs  Meet NCLB Reporting Requirements  Measure Progress  Share Results Most Districts Today Identify Improvement Areas with Assessment & Data-Driven Analysis Intermediate Needs  Regular Diagnostic Assessments  Analyze to Determine Areas of Educational Weakness and Strength More Progressive Districts
